Cover feature is the Gundam GP series, with the 3 MG kits and a 1/100
scratch built GP-03S being the first one presented before the 3 Bandai kits.
It was an obvious come-on to Bandai. There's a MS-14Fs Gelgoog Marine for
Commando conversion made from a MG MS-14A kit. Changed the torso and
backpack, the shield, legs, and gave it a Dom bazooka. A lot of minor
fixes were also done to the arms, shoulder, feet, etc. ARGH!!! BANDAI
SHOULD MAKE THIS A MG KIT!!!

More pages dedicated to the new MG kits - Super Gundam and GM, both nicely
built.

AH!!! PG Zaku with some exclusive shots that Hobby Japan failed to get!
A frame-only shot! Very cool! Not really recycled from the PG Gundam
frame, as you can tell the arms and legs fit nicely under the Zaku armor,
and the chest piece makes up over half of the torso. Upper torso can
tilt forward indepdent of the lower torso, and the head/neck comes off
completely for easy access to the cockpick. I already like this kit!
It is more proportionally correct than the PG Gundam (am I the only one
who thinks the PG Gundam's legs are not long enough?)

There's way much more in this issue, but it's time to hit the sack...
ZZzzzzz...
